Boehner just said the U.S. has the best health system in the world. What has he been smoking? Oh yeah, he does smoke. Has he missed the whole health care discussion? 40 million uncovered? No pre-existing conditions covered? Most expensive system in the world, and the most red tape. That is the best in the world? I think not! He is just a shill for the insurance companies. Disgusting. This is what people voted for? Maybe they don't like some of the details of the bill, but they were certainly not happy with what we had.
Well, I'm in Viet Nam. Unfortunately they block Facebook. So people will have to come here for my blatherings. They are idiots for blocking it. This country is locked down. They have nothing to worry about. It is interesting that the south still regards itself as more free. They call the northerners communists. VN is much more modern than Cambodia. Cambodia is still recovering from Pol Pot and the civil war. But they are building like crazy. Some investors are going to make a killing--probably not the best choice of words for Cambodia :), but oh well. But returning to VN, my hotel is rather elegant. Dinner cost me $55! No more dinners here! But I get the impression that VN is more expensive that the rest of SE Asia. Tomorrow is the Cu Chi tunnels. I'm a bit claustrophobic, so it could get a but hairy.
